Fall Break knitting...

So, Ive been on Fall Break from school this week and I have done a lot of knitting. I finished the Central Park Hoodie I've been working on. It only needs buttons and that will have to wait until I can get to Lexington to a store besides WalMart.This is day #2 of the mid-October Monthly Dishcloths KAL in Peaches & Creme Burgundy on 3.5mm circulars.
I started another Central Park Hoodie for my oldest dd in the same Knit Picks Swish Superwash but this time in Dublin green. I will have to make the sleeves at least 1 inch longer and the body 1 1/2 inches longer because she is a little taller than me.
Here is the monster puppy (at least 63 lbs by now and only 7 months old) with his newest baby, a pink bear. We bought it several years ago for our little black Chow mix, Sabrina, but she really doesn't like squeaky toys. Ran across it yesterday looking for something else and so gave it to him. He is obsessed with it now and is sleeping with it right beside him all the time.
I finished up the Gumdrop socks yesterday. Used Knit Picks circulars size 2.omm. This is the previous installment of the Blue Moon Sock club. Glad to be finally done with them.
I didn't have much to spare from the skein either as you can see in the picture below. Only inches left of the two balls I had divided it into. Both remains weighed in at .45 ounces. Whew!
I immediately cast on for these socks that I got from The Loopy Ewe some time ago. I plan to at least get the toe increases finished before I move back to the CPH and the dishcloth KAL later today. For now, housework beckons...unfortunately. Think I will start with the bathrooms... get the yuckiest job out of the way first.

I love the Central Park Hoodie!

And your puppy is beautiful! I once had a Golden Retriever like him; he had a pink dolly he "loved" to death. :-)
